Information resources on petroleum chemistry.

Petrochemistry is an area of chemistry that studies the transformation of petroleum and natural gas into useful products and raw materials for chemical products.

The economic sector, which is based on mineral oils and natural gases, is of considerable importance for the national and global economies. Chemically serve the mentioned natural resources as raw materials for a wide range of basic chemicals that are ultimately processed into plastics, pharmaceuticals, dyes, surfactants, solvents, fuels, and many others.

Main ingredients of this fossil raw material sources are especially aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, which are processed in petrochemical plants.

In the following list you will find online available information and information sources on petrochemistry.
